In 1997, at the Phoenix General Assembly, a Business Resolution was adopted to address inclusivity and accessibility within the Unitarian Universalist Association for people with disabilities. It mandated written policies and practices, staff training, an accessibility manual, and a variety of resources, and a Board-appointed standing committee, to support congregations in their efforts to become more accessible, address matters of disability concerns and report annually to the General Assembly.
Ten years later, following the 2007 Portland General Assembly, the Board of Trustees voted to disband the Accessibilities Committee as of December 31, 2007, with “profound and abiding thanks,” and to continue the work of the committee within the Journey Toward Wholeness Transformation Committee.
